Looking to get a brand new start, Elin Nordegren has torn down her mansion in North Palm Beach, Florida.

The 32-year-old Swedish model decided to bulldoze the 9,000 square foot home, which she purchased in March 2011 shortly after she had received an estimated $100 million divorce settlement from ex-husband Tiger Woods.

According to TMZ, Elin want to change the 6 bedroom, 8 bathroom luxury pad because it "wasn't quite up to her standards.”

Nordegren has now hired a "high priced architect" to build her "dream home," with every single worker having been forced to sign a confidentiality agreement in order to keep information from being leaked to the public.

In the meantime, the 32-year-old Swedish beauty and her kids have moved into a private community mansion where they will remain until the new house is complete.
