I have 2 beagles now, had others, never had trouble house training them. I have lives with [over 45 years] over twelve Dogs, and have never- and will never- crate train a Dog.
I have seen several dogs of diff sizes and breeds who have been badly affected by crate training, i.e. leaving them in the crate too much/too long.
Huskies are HIGH maintenance, need LOTS of attention, and LOTS of activity; Remember that they are working dogs.
Remember also that YOU two are now the Huskies 'pack', and they want to be WITH the pack, not constantly separated from you.
Did the vet check for urinary tract infection? Other medical cause of indoor urination?
Have you tried 'WEE WEE Pads', along with a GOOD odor and stain remover? Get rid of the existing pee scent, (which you maybe cannot smell, but Dog can), and out down the WeeWee pad. WHen they urinate on that, take it outside and lead them to the pad, and they will learn to urinate outside.
Praise them often, and reward good behaviour. But, be careful scolding the Dog, unless you catch them in the act. Scolding them minutes or hours later, they don't know why you are punishing them, and that leads to worse episodes of urination indoors.
Patience, praise, and repetition are paramount.
