Aruch L'Ner: Building a Sucah on Chol Ha'mo'ed

If someone does not have a Sucah it is permitted to build one on Chol ha'Mo'ed because it is a Melachah that is needed for Yom Tov. Is it permissible to build a Sucah on Chol ha'Mo'ed if one has a Sucah, but he needs a bigger one because he is making a Bris and there are many people joining him in the Sucah? The Bikurei Yakov (Aruvh l‘Ner) says that the Melachah of building the Sucah is permitted in this case because it is regarded as something that is needed for the Moed. Even though normally a Melachah that is needed for the Moed is only permitted if it is done in privacy, in this case it is apparent and obvious that the building of the Sucah is for the purpose of the Moed and therefore it is permitted to build the Sucah publicly.
