hand hewn oak logs, top two logs are pegged on end though dove tail notch. Is this all that holds the roof on? wind won't lift it? All that was there originally, do I do something else now? Re-assembling on new site. thanks

Can't say. I would recommend getting a structural engineer to look at. Most lumber yards have one on staff.
