GREEN BAY, Wis. - As expansion of Lambeau Field continues, two houses intended for demolition have been spared. 

The Green Bay Packers organization purchased the homes for $6,000 and originally planned to raze both.

Instead, the houses were relocated Friday and are being donated to the Greater Green Bay Habitat for Humanity.

The team is building a new media parking lot in their place. 

The entire facelift to Lambeau will cost an estimated $143 million, adding 67-hundred more seats, high definition screens and a new entrance by next year.
