Richard,
First of all, I'm a little confused as to what type of material you are using. Are you talking about natural stone or "cast stone" (concrete)? It can't be both.

Your question was recently discussed in another thread. I suggest you read that thread:
Best details for thin stone veneer exterior wall.

Here is a GBA detail for stone veneer with an air space over 1.5 inch of rigid foam, using adjustable veneer ties: http://www.greenbuildingadvisor.com/cad/detail/plan-detail-stone-veneer-...

If you still have questions after looking at the detail and reading the other Q&A thread, feel free to post them here.
