Why Did Tiger’s Ex Demolish Mansion? Termites

People magzine reported tha the $12 million mansion was torn down in part due to an infestation of termites and carpenter ants throughout the foundation.

| January 25, 2012

Elin Nordegren, the Swedish ex-wife of golf pro Tiger Woods, recently demolished her $12 million Florida home she purchased after her divorce, and is planning to rebuild a new home in the same spot very similar to the original.

People reported the first property was torn down in part due to an infestation of termites and carpenter ants throughout the foundation. Before the house was demolished, Nordegren allowed the pieces from her original home to be collected by a local Habitat for Humanity group to be used on other projects. Now, Nordegren can rebuild the home from scratch, and design every nook and cranny to her liking.

USA Today, however, reported that the Habitat for Humanity group tried to salvage all of the materials from the original home, but found some of the wood was still crawling with termites and carpenter ants, making the materials unusable. Fortunately, the charitable group was able to reuse tens of thousands of dollars worth of cabinets, hardware and fixtures from the original property  Pest control services would have to be called to make sure the materials were clear of pests first.
