According to The Sun
, the "Rumor Has It" singer is splashing out a rooftop solar array for her new beachside home in Brighton in southeast England.
“Adele’s house is something to behold," a source told the paper. "She’s having loads of work done at the moment so she won’t move in for a while. But when she does, she’ll have one of the most eco-friendly houses in the area.”
Since the release of her record-breaking second album "21," Adele has seen her fortune rise an estimate $22 million in just 12 months. While she plans on releasing one new single this year (possibly for the new James Bond film, "Skyfall,") the rest of 2012 is more about R&R.
"I have to take time and live a little bit," she said. "There were a good two years between my first and second albums, so it'll be the same this time."
Adele has good reason to slow things down: Back in October
, she suffered a vocal chord hemorrhage that silenced her for more than three months.
"When you are silent, everyone else around you is silent," she said in a recent interview. "So the noise in my life just stopped. It was like I was floating in the sea for three weeks. It was brilliant. It was my body telling me to fix me. I had so much time to kind of go over things and get over things, which is amazing. I think if I hadn't had my voice trouble, I would never have broached those subjects with myself. Now I just feel really at peace ... in fact, my entire life has changed in the last 10 weeks. I've never been so happy, and I love it."
Since her successful comeback at the 2012 Grammy Awards (at which she won six categories), the 23-year-old has focused on improving her health, dropping an estimated 14 pounds by shifting to a vegetarian diet.
"I'm trying to be veggie," she told a U.K. radio program. "For what I want to do next year, I have to be really healthy and stuff like that."
