Install built-in cabinets / pantry over existing wall

I am going to build and install built-in cabinetry to serve as a pantry. I already have a design, but am wondering if there's advice regarding wall preparation prior to attaching the carcass. It's currently a standard finished wall (paint over drywall). In the picture it is the setback where the hutch currently sits.

My plan right now is to remove the trim / baseboard material and attach my carcass supports directly through the existing wall into the studs, then refinish the corners at the top an bottom after completion.

It's standard practice to install cabinets over drywall.

refinish the corners at the top an bottom after completion.

OK thanks. by refinishing the corners I meant that I expect to have to do some aesthetic work at each visible corner, so that the trim doesn't end or change abruptly.

A true "built in" would have a face frame that covers the corner bead and your baseboard would butt into it.
