Karamak in North Galesong is a fishing village located adjacent to Makassar Strait. Temperatures can reach more than 40℃; as well as in the house units, temperatures can reach up to 37℃ during the day in the dry season. From the thermal comfort aspect, it is then far from comfort to do activities. It has an impact on changes in the occupant's attitude in choosing the activity space. The research objectives are to find the differences between indoor and outdoor temperatures that affect community response to the transfer of their activities from indoor to outdoor during the daytime with the aim of finding a comfortable activity atmosphere so that activities can be more optimal. The method used was to conduct thermal measurements on the macro and micro scale, including temperature, humidity by the HTC-2 to measure temperature and humidity, while for wind speed using an anemometer. Macro scale climate measurements were carried out in outdoor and micro-scales in indoor of the stage house units. Data collection was carried out simultaneously in the rooms in the sample house. The measurement results were presented in the table. The analysis was used in a comparison between outdoor and indoor climates. Measurements also take off people's perceptions of indoor-outdoor thermal as supporting data measured by the tool. The study has given information about the coastal climate effects on microclimate conditions (residential units) so that it became hot during the day. This study also provided insights for planners and policymakers going forward in response to heated conditions. The microclimate made the residents move the activity space to outdoor that was more comfortable and able to support their activities.
