Brian,

Chief  has a bonus library called log truss components. if your pitch and length is a common one, they have pre made ones. Other wise individual logs to make your own.

If you make your own logs, the material becomes important.  A solid color is not a problem.  If you use a wood texture, you will have to copy it and make a new material with the angle of the material set to match the pitch of your log rafter.  It takes some work but it will look nice.post-1663-0-55152700-1457715894_thumb.jpg
