Wow, when I moved into my house, I painted and laid some new carpet.  However, Elin Nordegren has good reason to want to have a fresh start with "everything".  She has a lot of emotional baggage to manage.  Hopefully, she can continue to recover from their personal tragedy, maybe leveling a mansion is "just what she needed"!

According to TMZ on the Fox Sports website:

Tiger Woods' ex-wife, Elin Nordegren, has just demolished her $12 million Florida mansion — so she can build a better home on the same plot, TMZ reported Thursday.

Nordegren bought the North Palm Beach home in March, eight months after she finalized her divorce in 2010 from her cheating husband and received a $100 million settlement.

It was thought that the Swedish former model would move into the sprawling six-bedroom, eight-bathroom property with her two children by Woods, but instead she knocked the whole place down.

She hired a top architect to help build her a new dream home, and every worker involved in the project is required to sign a confidentiality agreement, according to TMZ.

It was not known when the 32-year-old's new pad would be completed, and in the meantime, she is living in a nearby mansion inside the private community.
