Since we know that dogs don't want to soil the place where they sleep or eat, we can use this instinctive behavior to our advantage if our dog doesn't seem to realize that he has to respect not only his domain and crate, but also the whole house.
Every time your dog will have an accident, feed his next meal exactly where he made the mess. Continue to follow the seven-step technique at the same time and in no time at all he'll understand that the whole house is his den and that he has to respect it. Another thing you can do to help him understand is to spend some time in each room AFTER he has completely eliminated.
