Ernie, George and Carl

Karacsay Constructions build high quality residential and commercial projects. They are located in Colac, Victoria.  From Colac to the coast is dotted with many fine examples of Karacsay Constructions craftsmanship.

Founder, George Karacsay first learnt his craft in Austria & initially began operation in Geelong & then Carlisle River in 1956. A company was created in 1977 between George, his wife Irene & his two sons, Carl & Ernest.

This family business is now well known throughout the Western District of Victoria for producing highly individual & creative pieces of blackwood kitchens and furniture using time-honoured techniques. Much of the blackwood used is harvested locally & hand picked for each piece. The quality of the woods used, particularly local Blackwood, coupled with the skill of the craftsmen, produces furniture that is totally unique as well as functional & enduring.

In summary, Karacsay Constructions will pour the foundations of your house, build your house, provide all the joinery including kitchen and create the dinning table and chairs, all under the one roof.





Karacsay Constructions is a proud family based building and joinery business who's reputation has been based on the principles of "Design, Build & Furnish" always finishing with the highest of standards. Father George, along with his two sons Carl and Ernie and their trained staff are capable of a wide range of products, expanding from commercial and residential architectural designs to custom made furniture including all your kitchen joinery needs.


Karacsay Constructions can expertly design a kitchen to suit your tastes, needs and style requirements. Kitchens can be completed in a variety of finishes such as:

  • Timber/Granite/Laminate benchtops
  • Timber/Vinyl rap/2 pack painted doors

Our blackwood kitchens create warmth, character and timeless elegance. We create kitchens which will not only stand the test of time but, just as importantly, the test of fashion. Five, ten or fifty years from now, these kitchens will still be warm, have character and exude elegance. We pride ourselves on our craftsmanship and attention to detail. Below are just a few of our kitchens.

For many years Karacsay Constructions has been creating hand crafted furniture from many species of woods and designs, specialising in blackwood.

At Karacsay Constructions we create doors to suit all tastes and needs. From the traditional to more modern and highly personal and creative pieces.  Doors don't simply have to be a portal from one space to another; from one room to another. They can be much more. They can serve their practical purpose and also be a work of art.

The blackwood doors pictured here are just a few examples of what can be achieved with wood and all its wonderful shapes. These doors can be inlaid with various styles of glass or if you prefer - leadlight. And of course they can be made to any size.

Custom made doors

Carl Karacscay specialises in doors which are quite unique. This solid redgum door has an inlay in the style of a tree while the side panel has a hand carved owl. Doors like this can be made to order.

Ernie Karacsay designed and built his house in the shaped of an octagon. Featuring internal windows and a fish tank that looks through to an enclosed courtyard in the center of the house. This house also features many of Karacsays custom made features and furniture.


Carl Karacsay designed and built this family home in the beautiful bush setting of Barongarook.  He took inspiration from the shape of a gumleaf and the residence has a very organic feel with many creative flourishes.
