I did see the thread on house training, but will go back and read it more thoroughly as I thought it was more about a specific issue (not peeing in the rain) rather than general tips. Funnily enough, our puppy also was not happy about going in the rain at first, but he needed to get over that in a hurry since we live in England -- no escape from rain here! He still doesn't like it, but does go.
We have had to back track because we gave him way too much freedom at first. He isn't in a crate, but is in a pen. It folds all different ways and sizes. During the day, we've used it to block the stairs and an area of the kitchen where we don't want him to go. At night, we fold it down to a small square. I guess we're going to have to back track some more and keep him in the smaller pen during the day when we can't watch him.
It's more obvious when he needs a poop, and he sometimes even goes to the door and whines, so that part has been pretty easy. He hasn't pooped in the house in over a week.
I don't think he has a uti (he goes all night w/o peeing), but he goes to the vet next Tuesday so I will ask them to check.
