Students in the construction class at Kangaroo Island Community Education have built their first dog kennel.

But this is dog kennel with a difference.

It's a big kennel, big enough for one of the students to fit in themselves.

And the structure was constructed using the same technology and materials as a full-size house.

It even includes a framed picture of the class hung inside for the property owner and their dog to enjoy.

The kennel is going to be donated to a Parndana family, who were burned out during the fires.

There is another kennel on the way with a gable roof but that will probably be all the students can build due to their limited supply of building materials.

The students are now look at rebuilding letter boxes once they get more building material.

This is not the first giant dog kennel built on Kangaroo Island after the bushfires as the Men's Shed also built kennels, including one particular big one for Bruce the big bullmastiff.
