The minhag in Klal Yisroel, as brought down in the Seforim HaKedoshim, is to build your sukkah on Motzei Yom Kippur.
Hopefully all the men here will only be reading this in the morning once the Sukkah is underway…October 9, 2011 2:14 am at 2:14 am #1186010Josh31Participant
Some of us have non Jewish neighbors whom we do not want to disturb with night time construction.October 9, 2011 2:28 am at 2:28 am #1186011am yisrael chaiParticipant

For some people online, it IS the morning…

What if I’m too busy picking out an esrog? Or what if I’m planning to spend sukkos in E”Y but I’m not there tonight?October 9, 2011 2:36 am at 2:36 am #1186013YW Moderator-42Moderator

One of my fondest memories is watching my father build the sukkah on motzei yom kippur. He is holding the hammer and I am holding the can with the nails 🙂 We had a beautiful sukkah.October 9, 2011 3:13 am at 3:13 am #1186016sam4321Participant
Seforim Hakodoshim a.k.a the Rama(624,625). There is a discrepancy brought down by the Mishna Brura.In 624 the Rama says the careful ones, which is talking about starting to build,but in 625 the Rema uses the wording of mitzvah which is talking about the completion of the sukka on the next day(tomorrow).October 9, 2011 5:13 am at 5:13 am #1186017HealthParticipant
I saw that if you can’t (Or won’t -my addition) build the Sukkah tonite you should learn Hilchos Sukkah. So if anybody read or posted on the Sukkah topics here in the CR you are Yotze!October 9, 2011 5:30 am at 5:30 am #1186018wanderingchanaParticipant
Dr. Seuss, yours was up and done when you posted, right? Mazel tov!October 9, 2011 5:34 am at 5:34 am #1186019am yisrael chaiParticipant
Oh, c’mon, no one here built their sukkah in the early summer?
I distinctly remember threads where people were cooking for Rosh Hashana about that time…
They’re probably preparing hamantashen as we speak…October 9, 2011 5:37 am at 5:37 am #1186020wanderingchanaParticipant
I kashered my house for Pesach this week.

Why are you only worried about non-jewish neigbours? You must be freinds with my neighbour. I thank him every year for keeping my kids up half the night making noise.October 9, 2011 3:19 pm at 3:19 pm #1186022shlishiMember
Building the Sukkah mainly means putting up the sechach. So wouldn’t you have to put the sechach up Motzei YK to fulfill this?October 9, 2011 5:32 pm at 5:32 pm #1186023ItcheSrulikMember
Today is motzei yom kippur and the sukka is complete.October 13, 2016 2:45 am at 2:45 am #1186024147Participant
I studies some Mishnah & Gemorro Sukko with my son tonite Motzei Yom-Kippur.October 13, 2016 3:52 am at 3:52 am #1186025takahmamashParticipant
I put up our sukkah walls before Y”K. The schach goes up on Friday, when I have time.

causing a chillul Hashem by waking up the non jewish neighbors is worse in devalue then the value of the mitzva of putting up the sukka right after yom kippur which can in truth be done any time in the daytime & prevent a big chillul Hashem which we all know yom kippur cannot be mechaper only death can forgive for chillul Hashem
Everyone have a wonderful year & sukkosOctober 13, 2016 12:05 pm at 12:05 pm #1186027zahavasdadParticipant
I prefer to put up the succah during the day as its much easier to see everything (even with lights) If for example you drop a screw, its pretty hard to find it at night, but during the day its usually pretty simple.
Most people around me usually put it up the Sunday before Succoth or the Sunday before Yom Kippur (like this year).. So most Succas were already up before Yom Kippur
