This study intends to analyze the feasibility of building evaluation guidebooks. Building Physics attaches great importance to the comfort and health of occupants. Designing a building without taking into account Building Physics will cause inconvenience to the occupants of the building. However, students understanding of healthy buildings that meet the principles of Building Physics tend to be low. It might happen because students only understand the theory of Building Physics. Based on this, developing a building evaluation book that aims to improve students’ skills in building health is very important. Through evaluating community residential buildings, students are expected to be able to create healthy buildings according to the principles of Building Physics. This study uses a research development approach (Research and Development) by adopting the ADDIE development model only in three stages; analysis, design, and development. This research produced a product in the form of a student book that can guide students in evaluating community housing. The designed book went through several analysis stages; validity and practicality tests. The tests were carried out by lecturers and students of the associate’s degree of Civil Engineering study program at Unimed. Based on the research, the resulting book product proved to be feasible and practical for use by students so that later they would be skilled in evaluating the health of buildings under the principles of Building Physics, namely healthy buildings in harmony with nature.
