Anchoring Top of Frame on Lookout Basement

Hello. I have a lookout basement with 4 feet of poured cement and 4 feet of already framed wall above it. The base or 4 foot concrete wall pertrudes out roughly 4 inches and creates a shelf/lip/legde. I want to frame the 4 foot poured wall. I have created a "test" 8 foot frame (wall is 35 ft long) that is exactly 4 feet high. How do I attach the top part of the frame? Do I use a 2 x 6/7, attach it to the top part of the 2 x 4, thus sitting on part of my concrete shelf and nail/glue it on that way? I would want to have the wall at least 1/2 inch from the poured wall to keep it even so using brackets attached to the wall would probably not work.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Pat

Pat99,

Wood treated, anchored to the wall would be good and then attach your kneewall. Basically create a deep top plate and then nail this to your wall. It should work fine!

Good Luck!
