I would extend the wall studs to the top of the pony wall elevation and ledger the floor on the wall. I know what you described is what a contractor will typically do but it is not safe. I have seen many a short wall with 3/4" - 1" deflection at the top 4 months after construction. There is no way to correct it at that time. You hope the roofing is light weight.

Where would the "roof height" be defined for a "single-story" structure with enough volume below the roof (12:12 pitch) that creates a second floor? The gable ends extend to the roof ridge, while the rafters bear on a pony wall +18" above the second floor. The second floor is 11'-0" above the ground floor. Any thoughts would be much appreciated. TIA.
