Default Dimensions

I am very new to Maya but experienced in Vector works. I want to begin to using Maya for some venue renderings and animations to better present my ideas...with that said, is there a way to display or create objects in Maya in Feet and Inches instead of units?

Under Window -> Settings/Preferences -> Preferences, choose "Settings" from the list on the left.

What you are looking to change will be under Working Units (specifically "Linear").
