    Boxing in this boiler.
    I have got a kitchen door front and also an end panel for either side.

    Should I just screw timber to wall (vertically) and build a frame out from wall using brackets for support?

    At front just install door on hinges like usual kitchen door?

    I would put in sides and have a lift off door for easy access and boiler maintenance.

    I'd have it so the whole 'cupboard' lifts off for service/repair, with the door available for adjusting etc.
