What to use for foundation anchor to sill?


I am trying to determine what I can use to anchor my house to its new foundation. The house is already built and will be lifted while a new foundation is put in. The house has an 8" x 8" beam running the perimeter of the house which acts as both the sill and rim joist (floor joists are attached to it with hangers). The new foundation will be 8" wide. I cannot access the top of the perimeter beam without ripping my walls apart.

So how do I attach the perimeter beam to the new foundation? I cannot pass a bolt through the beam itself. Ideally I would like to embed something in the foundation while it is wet, but I can't think of what to use. Any suggestions?

Looks like Simpson makes a foundation strap that might work. Try this link
