Construct a rectangular frame of 2x2 such that it fits just inside your intended cabinet walls. Mount frame to CMU wall with Tapcons every 8" or so. Construct cabinet with rear lower edges trimmed to fit over baseboard. Mount cabinet over frame and secure with appropriate cabinetry screws.

Alternates:

1. Maybe only a three-sided frame, since your cabinet unit will not have it's own floor. Use the complete rectangle frame for upper cabinets if any are planned.

2. Secure lower side edges to similar mounting strips installed on floor.
