When some people are unhappy with their home, they remodel. Elin Nordegren, well, she demolishes.

According to a report from TMZ, Nordegren, the 32-year-old ex-wife of Tiger Woods, demolished her $12 million Florida mansion, leveling it to build her dream home.

Nordegren reportedly bought the 6 bedroom, 8 bathroom home amassing 9,000 square feet in North Palm Beach along the water back in March after she received an estimated $100 million divorce settlement from Tiger Woods.

TMZ reported that the home wasn't quite up to her standards, so she hired a demolition team to tear down the multi-million dollar mansion. According to The Daily Mail, the property was not big enough for her, so she had it leveled.

Nordegren also hired an architect to rebuild her dream home, which we will never know the details about until it is finished because all workers are obligated to sign a confidentiality agreement.

Elin Nordegren is rumored to be staying in another luxury home nearby with her children, four-year-old daughter Sam and two-year-old son Charlie, while her home has work done.

Tiger Woods and Nordegren divorced in 2010 after reports surfaced that he had cheated during the couple's five-year marriage. Following the highly-publicized split, it was reported that Swedish model Elin Nordegren would get anywhere between $100 million and $750 million in divorce settlements, though the exact amount was never clear.

Currently, Elin Nordegren has been dating billionaire Jamie Dingman since July.
