After noticing a lack of online resources for manufactured homeowners, Adkins founded Mobile and Manufactured Home Living, an online magazine featuring remodeling ideas, repair information, and decorating inspiration for mobile and manufactured homes. Since the site launched in 2011, it has grown to become a popular online destination for manufactured homeowners. Adkins has written more than 270 articles about manufactured homes and vintage mobile homes.
