Basement ledge

I need ideas on how to seal up a ledge in my unfinished basement. The basement wall is normal cinder block, but about 2 feel from top of the ceiling, the wall is recessed back about a foot, leaving a ledge. I really have no idea how to seal this up to create a complete wall. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to the forums! What are your plans to "create a complete wall". Are you studding up the interior for sheetrock? If you are leaving the block wall and offset as they are, you could lay in a pressure treated bottom plate, spf top plate and install short studs to bring the ledge out to the plane of the wall. Again, not sure what your plans are or why you need to bring the ledge area out. How tall is this ledge area?
