Basement Wall Ledge Framing

I want to install a shower in my basement but the external wall has a ledge about three foot up from the floor. It is insulated from the top of the ledge to the joists with blown in insulation and covered in plastic. I really don't want a shelf in the shower. I can't just build a 2x4 wall in front of the ledge wall because I'm limited to space due to the existing shower floor drain. It would have to be moved which would involve concrete work.

If you want something that will take up a minimum of available space, look at prefab shower units made of fiberglass or acrylic, or shower wall panel kits.
