Chris,

The ICC-400 Standard on the Design and Construction of Log Structures
(link:
http://www.iccsafe.org/e/prodshow.html?prodid=7017S06&stateInfo=btjPdpGj
Frbfslkl1466|5) is probably be a good start. I believe it does have
section properties for log members.

Subject: Structural Logs

Hi All,

We have had a couple of projects come up where the homeowner wants
ridge beams, patio roof rafters and structural posts to be made of
logs.  Our initial thought was just to conservatively design for a
nominal member that fits in a square inside the cross section of the
log.  Does anyone have experience and/or resources for designing and
detailing this type of construction?

Thanks very much,

Chris Slater
