NORTH PALM BEACH, Fla. -- Elin Nordegren is constructing a new mansion in North Palm Beach and though the massive home is nowhere near completion, she is already flying a Swedish flag from the roof, according to the Daily Mail.
Photos surfaced this week in The Daily Mail of the 3-story, 21,000 square-foot house being built near Jupiter that will reportedly include an Olympic-sized swimming pool, waterfalls, movie theater, spa and more.
The ex-Mrs. Tiger Woods purchased a 1932 built house on the property for $12.2 million and soon after had it demolished to make way for the new home.
Nordegren was criticized for destroying the existing home but she insisted that it would have been too much work to restore the home which was bug-ridden and not prepared to weather a hurricane.
She received a $100 million settlement in the highly-publicized divorce from Tiger Woods in 2010.
