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.

It's easy to just throw away $12 million when you did not work hard for any of it.

She did donate the appliances and other things that were inside the house before they knocked it down. she let habitat for humanity come in and take the cabinets, finishes, appliances, and others things that they could use. that's about 10s of thousands of dollars right there.

I'm thinking of all the good that money could have done if it had gone to Sjogrens or MS research instead of pampering the ultra rich idiots ... what a waste.

If it was termite-infested and not up to Hurricane-code, then why did she pay 12 mill for it?

At this rate she'll burn thru her divorce $ and then what? Ask for more? Want ridiculous child-support payments to pay for her extravagance in reality?

Wouldn't it have been easier and a lot cheaper to buy a house... er mansion that met code?

I suppose when you swallowed for your $$$$ you become rather self-entitled.

Elin has only one of 2 explanations how she missed 17 infidelity's.

She's dumb as a box of rocks, or cleaver as a fox. I bet she started casting for her reality show as soon as she met Tiger.

How coincidental that she's dating one of Rachel's ex-boyfriends.

Sweden is one of the most permissive societies in Europe.

Swedish sexuality education operates on four levels. In general, at the lowest level, education for pupils age 7 to 10 years deals with menstruation, intercourse, self-pleasuring, contraceptives, fertilization, pregnancy, and childbirth. The same topics are dealt with at higher levels, adjusted to the students' age and maturity. At the middle level, ages 10 to 13, added topics include the physical development at puberty, venereal diseases, homosexuality, exhibitionism, and pedophilia. On the upper level, ages 13 to 16, added topics include: petting, different views of sex roles, premarital relations, marriage and family including the views in some non-Christian cultures, abortion, pornography, prostitution, HIV/AIDS and “safer sex,” and where to go for further information and advice. On the college level are included sexual desire, with its variations in the orientation and strength, falling in love, sexual problems and dysfunctions, ethical and religious viewpoints on contraception and abortion, societal support for the family (family law), sexual problems of certain immigrant groups, and the problem of world population.

That mansion that Tiger paid $12 million doesn't look "termite infested" to me! And if the house is "90 years old" in Florida, then it obviously can withstand hurricanes!!! A bunch of lame, lying BS!

I think she must be the most selfish person I have ever heard of. I know this is her money but just think of all the little children who doesn't have money for shoes shelter or most important food. To have a temper tantrum and tear done a house like that she is nothing but a spoiled brat and should have to walk in these kids shoe for a year and then see if she thinks its ok to do someting like this. As far as her and Tiger I think he should count his blessings he's rid of her. What a selfish bitch!!!!

Who says gold diggin' don't pay. But, if she kissed Tiger woods just one time, she deserved every dime she got.
