Good call on figuring something else out - an option might be (and I know this option kinda sucks) but how about making smaller batches? Less weight on the stove would probably help and you'd still get to brew in your place.

I use propane outside when the weather is nice. But, in the winter; especially THIS winter, I use a heat stick to supplement my kitchen stove. Works great.

Try this heat stick. Under $40, shipped. That, with your stovetop, should get a 5-gallon full-volume batch to a boil.

I would say to absolutely NOT use a propane burner inside. There are tags on the burner and the propane tank saying to not do it either. (not that many people pay attention to those tags, but still)
There are way too many horror stories I've heard about that sort of thing.
I would say that if you have to brew inside, go with either electric with a heat stick (or build your own based around a hot water tank element) or look into induction burners.
I just read about those the other day and I'm seriously considering going that route if / when I get a space to brew in, if I can't arrange a natural gas setup (complete with exhaust hood directly over it.)
