Puppy refuses to potty outside! Help!

Hey guys, About 3 weeks ago me and my husband got a 10 week black lab puppy named Sully. He is such a smart puppy and so sweet but he absolutely refuses to potty outside. We've tried everything we possibly can and my husband is getting so aggravated by all of his accidents that he's telling me he wants to rehome him. We take him out every hour for hours! Last night I was at my wits end when I walked him for 3 hours and he did nothing but the second we got inside and I went to put his leash up he pooped in the living room and peed on the kitchen floor. We've had him for 3 weeks and in that time spand we've only gotten him to potty once outside. Weve tried crate training, puppy pads, getting a divider for his crate,taking him out every half hour, and I can't reward him for going potty outside because he never does. He loves outside too, gets all happy and runs around but it's like he thinks the house is his bathroom and outside is his house. I am so confused and frustrated. I'm trying my hardest to convince my husband that I'll fix it and to not think about re homing him but he's so fed up with having to buy carpet cleaner all the time and his accidents all over the place. Anyone have any much needed advice. Thanks in advance(:

I will tell you what worked for us. If you notice your dogs behavior right before they go the bathroom inside. Usually they will walk around in a circle or pace back and fourth while sniffing the ground. As soon as I would see him do this I would jump up and rush out the door with him. I know this is hard if your at the top of a building with an elevator. Best of Luck, Hang in there!
