Im trying to attach a sill plate and rim board to a foundation wall. If there is an easier way to do this I would appreciate any additional information but here is my issue.

 I loaded dimentional lumber from the structural framing family, I place the sill plate on the wall but it draws it to the inside corner of the wall so the sill plate does not extend to the edge of the foundation wall. I try to align the wall and sill plate but it does not allow me to do it and no error comes up. How do i get the sill plate to go all the way around the top of the foundation wall?

Most people never model elements that are within a wall.  We just add them as detail components in sections and details.

You can try making the sill plate with a sweep.

When I was doing wood framing I created a profile family that I could place inside the wall for sill and double top plates. I seem to remember putting a dimensional lumber section detail component in the profile, but I can't remember exactly why. I think It had to do with making it look right in a section view.

Use the align tool. Select the o/s of the wall. Hover over the end of the sill plate. Click tab until you get the shape handle. Select the shape handle.

OR -

Add a sweep to the wall in the type properties. That way when you add, move walls there won't be any extra work.
