cinderblock foundation interior walls


What is the best way to frame the interior walls of a 1st floor room with a cinderblock foundation? I want to get rid of "the shelf" look and have flat walls in the room. Right now I have a 5 inch shelf where the studs meet the cinderblock foundation.

Generally framing should be 1" from the block.
Never want to attach wood directly to block.
