I want to do a stone veneer on my slab foundation, and I want to face of the stone to be flush (just inside) the face of the exterior siding. Exterior siding will probably be cement board.

See this article for a reference: http://www.finehomebuilding.com/how-to/qa/brick-faced-foundations.aspx

The article doesn't address wall anchors. Would the mud sill, as pictured, actually need to be wider, and then run anchors from the poured wall through the mud sill, and then I just nail the sill plate to the mud sill?

Thanks, Todd

I would check the local building code, especially if you live in a tornado or hurricane prone area. in big wind this is a breaking point and nails might not get it done.
