Elin Nordegren

I'm So Rich, I'm Building

The Same House I Knocked Down

1/9/2012 5:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

011012_elin_nordegren_PCN_EXElin Nordegren is SO rich -- she's basically building a replica of the multimillion dollar estate she knocked down

TMZ has obtained renderings Elin submitted to the Palm Beach County Dept. of Planning, Zoning & Building.  The exterior elevation drawing is verrrry similar to the house that was on the $12 million property before Elin razed it. Both are traditional/colonial homes with a very similar shape.  The drawing looks similar to the 9,000 square foot house that was demolished.

Elin's builder told PEOPLE the house Elin 86'd was 90 years old, didn't meet code provisions to withstand hurricanes, and was infested with termites.

Of course, the house Elin builds will be brand spanking new. The supporting documents describe the house in detail. 

-- 9 bedrooms
-- 2 large living rooms
-- huge formal dining room
-- 2 kitchens
-- large pool
-- GROTTO!!!
-- pool cabana with HUGE living room
-- 2 jacuzzis
-- detached guest house with 3 bedrooms
-- 3 guest bungalows
-- wine cellar
-- ginormous master wing with crazy big walk in closet
-- basement that runs the entire length of the house

There's 120 feet of retaining walls, and they are bringing in 4100 cubic yards of soil -- which is an enormous amount. 

County officials have sent the architect back to the drawing board for some changes before the plans will be approved.

Technically its her money and she can do what she wants to with it, but some people would've been happy with a 12 million dollar mansion.

There is no way she will have any type of resources left if she is this dumb. I will give her 10 years tops before she has to kiss tiger's ass again.

Did anyone else notice @ the end of the PEOPLE Magazine story it says that Elin is STILL dating playboy billionaire Jamie Dinngman even AFTER TMZ/media outlets reported that he was SLEEPING w/ Rachel Uchitel @ the SAME time as Tiger (Jamie was in a relationship w/ some model @ the time ) b4 Rachel dumped him to become Tiger's full time mistress!!! Stuff like this is why some in the press need to stop making Elin out to be some bamboziled/naive woman because REALLY who STAYS w/ a man that was banging your ex-husbands mistress?

Not sure if she is doing this, and hopefully she is: giving "some" money to charities that help others.

That is what happens when you marry a babysitter who does nothing with her life. Since she does not know the value of money as she did not work for it, she has to do something. I see her going back to court in a few years when her money is done ad she has to pay taxes on her new place. So sad, Tiger is really better of.

Of course she would. When you earn money you didn't make, you have no appreciation for it.

Read the darn article, not just the headline, before you comment. The house was not hurricane safe and was infested with termites, and of course the price was set accordingly. No one would have bought it today to live in. Elin is certainly not dumb.


If you object to people being stinking rich, well, then vote away those politicians who have their back, and start redistributing wealth. In the meantime, she can do what she wants.

"Elin's builder told PEOPLE the house Elin 86'd was 90 years old, didn't meet code provisions to withstand hurricanes,---."

The architect is full of crap; I bet he is the one that talked Elin into building a new house so he could make a ton of money on the deal. Since the torn down house withstood humungous hurricanes for the last 90yrs, it was built up to code. You watch, particle board and inferior construction materials are going to be used to build the new house.

This whole story is about a damn blond and her money is soon parted.

The old mansion was built in the 30's, she probably needed to rebuild for decent Wi-Fi connection. It's worth the cost.
