Kitchen units from floor to ceiling?

Hi, at one side of our kitchen there is a boiler about 1/2 way up the wall and all pipework etc running up from it into the ceiling - over 3m high. I want to have this all hidden behind doors, and create some extra storage etc. Only problem is, the highest kitchen units available are only a fraction over 2m. How do I go about extending to the full ceiling height??

Generally, can base units be stacked on top of each other if the legs are removed, without leaving any unsightly gaps between doors? I suppose a wall unit could be placed on top of a base unit, but their depth won't be enough.

Just to make things a bit more difficult, I need the cabinets to be available in 800mm wide to allow enough clearance o_O

just been googling, and apparently it is possible to stack base units. The advice being to make sure you secure the top ones to the wall.
You could use a full height unit and box in above the boiler, did this in a kitchen to hide lots of pipes and cables.

Don't forget to allow adequate ventilation for your boiler when you put units around it!
