I have a similar seating situation to you, although I can have chairs it is a little impractial. I was specifically looking for benches. I know that you are in Canada, but can you tell me where you are getting benches from? Maybe they could give me some idea where I can get them in the US. I am considering using hay bales covered with blankets. It seems like it might be a viable option for you. I asked a question about alternative seating a few weeks ago and I'm just glad everyone was nicer to me than they were to you. Sorry!
