Saying that they are responsible for "the full design" is, well, saying a lot. Surely they influenced the design in many aspects, but it seems pretty fantastic to imagine that every aspect of an entire city was devised by two characters in a short timespan. If a city can pop by itself, without even a dirtamancer, then surely Erf is capable of handling details like filling in the hundreds of buildings in the city?
If Sizemore or Maggie did choose to create an ice house, then surely Parson would have received some answer from them about it, even if it's "it seemed right" or "all cities have an ice house even if we don't know what the ice is for."
