Good question, Sandra, I've been wondering the same thing

When the new sills go in, do you have to open up the wall cavity to drill down to set anchors?

Sill replacement is a common job on old homes, although not so much of a DIY task unless you have the correct tools and some help.

Any framing/remodelling carpenter should be able to do this work. Check with your local ordinances to see whats required for anchoring
