cold frame

Hi, I'd like to buy a cold frame but I live in a windy exposed area so ideally need one that fastens/ secures to the ground - any ideas please?

    We built one with breeze blocks, painted it white inside, and found an old sliding window for the top, this has worked well for several years now.  The wooden ones are very expensive, &  look gorgeous  but this works fine.  There is no wind that is going to blow that away - the back wall is the greenhouse, so it gets a tiny little bit of heat from that maybe.  It overwinters various plants, and then has the young seedlings etc in for hardening off.
