We have a beautiful wrap-around porch that we'd love to get a heater for so that we may enjoy sitting out there during this cooler weather.

The floor is concrete and the ceiling is wood. What sort of outdoor heater should we be looking at? Obviously not wood burning.

Look for something propane.
Have you ever seen those patio heaters- looks sort-a-like a small street lamp? Holds a propane tank in its base. There is a table top version- might be just what you're looking for.
I have used with a little success a propane heater thats the size of a large lunch box. It uses those small propane tanks (like Coleman stove). I don't remember the manufacturer but it came with a conversion kit so it could run off the large propane tank.
