I would not use pocket holes in this applicaton.

I would build the whole frame first nailing it together similar to a stud wall.
Mount preassembled frame to wall rather than building in place.

Definitely needs support. You can’t have it hanging in the air. A leg in the corner is one option.

Another option is two layers of plywood is another for increased stiffness.
Another is make an apron using 2×4 material.

Completely encasing with a base of ply set in a couple inches is another (which I think is best.)
With it, you could incorporate a couple doors and have storage.
You won’t be hitting a let with the vaccuum either ;-)

-- Everything is a prototype thats why its one of a kind!!
