Just watch Contact. First rule of government spending: why build one when you can have two at twice the price?

plus I mean isn’t the second Death Star a lot bigger than the first

I think Jacob's Contact comparison is dead on. They were building both at the same time, with the second started a handful of years after the first as a back up.

Yeah Deathstar II is much bigger than Deathstar I, but how much varies from source.  I think it is at least 50% bigger.  Considering that, it had to be started a while before Yavin.  And yeah, it was not finished like Choc says, Deathstar II was maybe 50% complete, with emphasis on operationality, so it could be said the habitable area was about the same size as the finished Deathstar I.
