(Scroll down for video) A young boy always wanted to climb into a treehouse, but he was unable to do so as he is bound to his wheelchair.

7-year-old Hayden Trigg was diagnosed with both cerebral palsy and spina bifida, which makes it very hard for him to play with his two brothers and with his classmates.

Trigg of Austin, Texas, was overjoyed when the Make-A-Wish Foundation and contractor Austin Tree Houses, offered to build him a wheelchair accessible treehouse.

The treehouse was built in the backyard of his family’s home.

The treehouse was built between 200-year-old oak trees on the family’s one-acre property.

When the treehouse was done, Trigg invited his classmates. The first graders rode the school bus to his home and joined him in playing in the treehouse for the first time.

Trigg said that it was the best day of his life and that he is now a popular kid in his class.
