Daf Yomi - Beitza 30 - Which Walls are Forbidden?

Daf Yomi - Sukkah 9 - Which Walls are Forbidden? (A review - perhaps we will get another explanation.)

The Ran rules that the prohibition to derive pleasure is only on the walls which are needed for the sukkah to be valid, but anything more than that is deemed extra and therefore, one would be permitted to sit in the portion of the sukkah that was not needed. However, the Ran concludes that if the entire sukkah was built at the same time, one would be forbidden to derive pleasure from the entire sukkah. Tosfos holds that whatever is more than what is neceesary for the sukkah will only be prohibited midrobanan.

The Aruch Lener states that he doesn't understand their logic for before the Yom Tov of Sukkos begins, there is no prohibition and it only become forbidden when Sukkos begins and it is used for the mitzva. At that time, the entire sukkah is built, so what would be the difference between the walls which were built first or later?

I didn't see an explanation of this yet.

Perhaps according to the vort commented here yesterday (Sukkah 8)from Rabbi Shachter, once the sukkah has been infused with kedusha, thoe walls are kodosh and are considered walls of the sukkah, but the ones that are built later are not kodosh and not regarded as being part of the sukkah.
