cultured stone


I am looking to install cultured stone on the front of my house.I want to install it up to the bottom of the windows and finish it off with a sill and install siding above it.My problem is that I have 2 bow windows on my house and I am not sure how to finish the stone off under them. Do I bring the sill under the window or butt the sill to the sides.The windows only stick out about 9 inches so there is no support framing under them.

Does this stone require a support base? How do you plan on adhereing it to the house? What are the plans for flashing the stone/siding interface?
The other questions can be answered later.

The sills only get used up to (butted into) the bay/bow windows in a situation like this. You don't need to use sill under these windows as they serve as a sill themselves.
