I'm not sure about that, but I don't know if its high COL would be an issue.

Cleveland is building a lot recently...top ten metro for growth in construction jobs this past year:

“During the past 12 months, the Cleveland area has added 5,300 construction jobs,” says Simonson. “That was a 15 percent increase. While last year, 37,500 people worked in construction, today there are 41,000 construction workers employed here.”

What do the construction workers do in the winter though when it's snowing, do they have to move elsewhere for work?

They continue with building projects through the winter. Life goes on in spite of the weather.

I'm 23 and my husband is 33, so an area with some nightlife would be nice too, but nothing too crazy/wild. We are renting a two bedroom apt for $700 here in Louisiana, so we could afford anything between $600 to $850 for a one or two bedroom apt.
You can definately find what you are looking for in alot of places in the Northeast, however, this price is a little low for the major cities in the NE (Philly, Boston, DC, NYC, even Baltimore) but you can still find lots of options.

You may also want to find a smaller college city, like Syracuse, which has a strong university with lots of ongoing projects.
