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.

what does that make you. "duh" as we see having money doesn't help with your brain power. If you think you are getting back at Tiger, you have just put Tiger above you in so many ways.

She's not the brightest bulb in the house. She might be rich, but that only makes you temporarily happy. She got way more than she deserved from Tiger and she knows it. She will always be known as Tiger's ex wife.

Wow, reading these comments makes me lose faith in humanity. did anyone even know that the house was not up to code, or even the fact it was infested with termites beyond repair? You people take a rich person and condemn them when they have the right to do what they want. You all only looked at the superficial event of it. I did see some comments out there that mentioned this, but most disappoint me. Congrats, you have fallen victim to the media frenzy~~

Song of Roland     

Elin's house is falling down,
Falling down, falling down,
Elin's house is falling down,
Termites and typhoons.

Build it up with gigacrete,
GigaCrete, gigacrete,
Build it up with gigacrete,
My fair lady.

Gigacrete is termite-proof,
Termite-proof, typhoon-proof,
Gigacrete is typhoon-proof,
My fair lady.

While the house looks great I don't think it is very clever to build an exact replica. There are always things to be improved you know. sibir
